Ann Arbor Windshield Repair

Even if slightly cracked, a windshield should be repaired immediately. Besides potential visual obstruction, windshields in today’s vehicles are designed to withstand much of the structural weight of your car during a rollover accident.

If a chip is less than 3/8 inch or the crack is less than three inches, our auto glass specialists can perform windshield repair and send you on your way in less than an hour. The process requires cleaning the area, injecting a resin to fill the void and buffing the area to a smooth surface. In most cases, the result is nearly invisible. Immediate repair is important since dirt will find its way into the crack making the windshield repair process impossible. If the crack is near the edge of the glass, replacement is usually required.

If you have coverage, insurance companies frequently reimburse for glass repair, which is less costly than replacement. Glass Doctor of Ann Arbor, MI, will help you to file the windshield repair claim.

Ann Arbor Windshield Replacement

When windshield repair is not possible, our auto glass specialist will replace your windshield with the glass specified by the original manufacturer using procedures mandated by the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC). In every instance, Glass Doctor of Ann Arbor, MI, complies with Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS®) for windshield replacement.

The replacement process is simple, but exacting. The specialist will first remove the damaged windshield and clean the surrounding areas. AGSC-approved adhesives are applied to the frame and the new windshield, matching the Original Equipment Equivalent (OEE) quality, is then placed. Once the new glass is installed, there is a mandatory wait of one hour while the adhesive cures and seals the new windshield in place. During the one-hour wait, the specialist will review the Windshield Protection Plan, which will assure you that we will repair or replace your new windshield, if damaged while driving, for the subsequent twelve months.
